My Students

My five-year-old students are so energetic about learning! They come to school excited to learn and make my day so fun with their love for learning. They come from so many diverse homes and bring all of their individuality to the classroom.

Each child in my classroom has a different way of learning and has different work abilities.

I like to make my classroom a safe, welcoming place for all learners to come and grow through exciting learning experiences.

My Project

Who doesn't love to have fun when they learn? Having these learning games in the classroom will provide my students with multiple fun opportunities to learn language arts skills. These games provide an assortment of activities that will keep students excited to learn. These activities will also provide them with opportunities to learn independently.

Not only will their language arts skills improve, but their problem solving skills and social skills will also benefit from receiving these games in the classroom.

They will be able work with other students and learn from each other while improving their skills in multiple areas.
